    Here is the 50 yard water jug video again. Just to have it in the same thread as the pig bullet.

    Now, imagine those jugs being that pig on the second shot at 50 yards...............

    Every time I hear you talking about you using a game card it just makes me smile


    Getting old and smart.............er.

    We pulled the first (his) on the cart together, but realized the size difference between the two of us wasn't conducive. So, the second pig (mine), we took turns. I took the first half of the trip to the truck and he took the second. Was much smoother.

    We had a good time. We've got the system down pat. But, with the addition of the game cart, this was the fastest start to finish we've had.

    Let's confine this conversation to the pig hunt...

    Excellent hunt and great (as always) report!

    The phrase, "Work smarter, not harder" applies here, too. Less energy expended haulin' the hawgs to the truck = more energy to do the dressin' out of said hawgs! :tooth: Here on the farm, I use either the quad or the tractor with a 3-point hitch utility carrier for that purpose. Beats draggin' by a long shot! :roll2:

    OK lets talk about lazy. The next thing you need is a game hoist. I made mine using 2" sign post metal but you can buy one at Cabela's. Mine is collapsible to 3' sections and is a bit taller. It gets the game up in the air. I extended my 2" hitch with a step and mounted a $69 remote controlled ATV winch from Harbor Freight to it. I drag my deer to the truck attach the gimbal and up it goes. No lifting bending or strain. No blood in the truck or on the tarp. If you make a gut shot open the abdomen, drop the pile then drive up wind for the rest of the butchering. A cooler filled with water and a battery operated pump would also be real nice too. I have a motor home so I just extend the shower wand. Just say'n

    I don't gut anything hanging. I know how to and used to do it that way. But, it's impossible to do a proper post mortem with the animal hanging. So, I back up to a tree next to my driveway. Hook the scale to a branch. Hook animal to the scale, pull forward and check weight. Laying out the tarp on my tailgate while the animal is hanging makes life easier. Then, I back up and put the animal back in the tailgate (autopsy table). Commence with the cutting and photographing the results.

    I keep the the cooler and my parts bucket next to the tailgate and drop parts accordingly.

    I'm in rural Montanawith a crap connection, but finally got the pics to load. Great job!

    I would have LOVED to have a game cart tonight. I WONT drag another deer up that damn hill at my uncles. Thankfully my daughter helped me. Yes. That's exactly what I said.

    It was her deer, she should be helping to drag it.

    With a little time I know for a fact a game cart can be built from left over conduit pieces. EMT would probably even be strong enough.
